Planning a park field trip is easy. First, explore program options that best meet your goals; choose between day (Explorer), overnight (Expedition) or inside (classroom) programs. All programs require a committment from teachers, students and chaperones to learning, as well as a respect for national treasures. The size and grade level of student groups also determines which program is best suited for their needs.

Dante Fascell Visitor Center grounds include a boardwalk for wildlife viewing, picnic tables and bathroom facilities. Inside the visitor center are educational videos, museum, touch table and art exhibit.

Please fill out the appropriate program registration form. For assistance in determining the most appropriate field trip, call (786)335-3625 or send an e-mail. Programs may be combined to fit your needs and time restraints.

When planning field trips please remember to check the weather and prepare students appropriately. Snacks and drinks are available, but limited. It is recommended that school groups bring their own lunch and refillable water bottles.
